Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn

The big band compositions of icons Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn are brought to life by the musicians of the Jacksonville Symphony for an evening of classic jazz. These two all-time greats, who worked together for 40 years, were equally famous for their 100 collaborations including Take The A Train, Satin Doll, Lush Life and even their renditions of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. This concert combines the energy of Ellington and the sophistication of Strayhorn. Hear the orchestra transform as the velvety sounds of jazz are expressed through singing strings and the smooth vocals of captivating tenor Bernard Holcomb.
